Bonnie Guitar and Carol Channing!

Posted in Uncategorized on January 15, 2019 by joecetta

Country singer Bonnie Guitar and Tony winner Carol Channing took their final bows this week, at ages 95 and 97, respectively! Guitar charted a dozen songs on the country charts in the 1950s and ’60s, and was one of the first crossover successes to the pop charts, along with Patsy Cline, with songs like “Dark Moon” and “Mister Fire Eyes.” She landed dozens of albums on the country Top 100, and continued to perform into her 90s! Speaking of performing into her 90s, Carol Channing’s seven decade career spanned legendary work on stage in Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, The Vamp, and her signature Tony winning role in Hello, Dolly! She made an easy transition to films and television, receiving a Golden Globe and a Best Supporting Actress Oscar nomination for Thoroughly Modern Millie in 1967, and popping up on variety specials and game shows for years to come. Her most memorable work for me might be in the bizarro cult ’60s musical/comedy Skidoo, as hitman Jackie Gleason’s wife, and co-starring Groucho Marx in his final film role as a pseudo-gangster named God. Carol sings the title number, dressed like this:

It’s bonkers

Sarah is getting right back to work in 2019 with her first death, picking up 15 points for Guitar, while the Buonins score the first Thirteen-Year-Man ever with Channing, drafted every year since we started the Silver Age pool back in 2007. Channing bounced around a little, starting on Michael’s team in ’07-’08, to Sarah in ’09, Munchak in ’10-’11, Eileen next for four years, then Adam in ’16, before finding her way back to Michael on team Buonin in ’17. Quite the journey!


Mean Gene Okerlund and Bob Einstein!

Posted in Uncategorized on January 3, 2019 by joecetta

The 2019 Death Pool kicks off with a pretty terrible day for 76-year-old white guys, as longtime wrestling announcer Mean Gene Okerlund and comedian Bob Einstein (not to mention Captain & Tennille singer Daryl Dragon) barely had any chance to celebrate the New Year this week, and yes, all at the age of 76! For many of my generation, Okerlund was the voice of wrestling we grew up with, alongside Gorilla Monsoon, Bobby the Brain Heenan, and a few others. As I recall, his was the only non-wrestler/manager action figure I had, and I’m pretty sure I still stuck him into a few Royal Rumbles anyway. Einstein is probably better remembered to a certain audience as his inept Evel Knievel persona Super Dave Osborne (which was indeed the way he was named on the list), which he performed on various late night shows and specials for decades, but he would also make memorable turns in recent years as Funkhouser on Curb Your Enthusiasm and Larry Middleman on season three of Arrested Development. He was the older brother of actor/director Albert Brooks.

Dondos picks right up where they left off in ’18, but with a comparatively large scoring death on Okerlund, but it’s 2018 rookie Ryan who finally gets in the game today after scoring no points in his entire first season. Day two! 34 points! His 367 days until his first death is the second longest run in history, only behind Sam, who took 460 days for a first tally back in 2008-2009. Also, as something that might only be interesting to me – these deaths on the same day for the same score mean that we have an ultra rare tie for the lead. In the twelve-plus years we’ve been doing this, we’ve only ever had a tie for the lead once before, for six days in 2014, between Sarah and Sean. Isn’t that amazing?

I’m also pretty sure this is the first time someone has taken a pool lead with their first death since at least 2010, when Gaz scored the first two deaths of the pool in his rookie (and ultimately only) year. Huh!

Ray “Eye Patch” Sawyer! Last Death!

Posted in Uncategorized on January 1, 2019 by joecetta

As ’70s looking a band as existed

Before we struck midnight here in Chicago yesterday I saw that Dr. Hook & the Medicine Show singer Ray “Eye Patch” Sawyer made his final Rolling Stone cover, at the age of 81! While not the band’s consistent lead singer – that would be Dennis Locorriere – or playing a significant instrument, Sawyer was undoubtedly the most recognizable member of the band, with his cowboy hat and eye patch, having been half-blinded in a car accident. He was the lead singer on Dr. Hook’s biggest hit, “The Cover of Rolling Stone,” while also contributing vocals on many of the band’s other hits, such as “Sylvia’s Mother,” “Carry Me Carrie,” and “Roland the Roadie and Gertrude the Groupie.”

And Kosmala scores the last tally of the year, with 29 points on Sawyer pushing him over the century mark for the fifth time. Well done!

Working through the keepers today, will get something posted soon. Thanks for a fun 2018, folks!

June Whitfield and Don Lusk!

Posted in Uncategorized on December 31, 2018 by joecetta

British actress June Whitfield and animator Don Lusk snuck out the door before 2018 came to close this week, at ages 93 and 105, respectively! Whitfield is probably best known for her roles on Absolutely Fabulous, Last of the Summer Wine, and Only Fools and Horses’ spin-off The Green Green Grass. Lusk was a longtime Disney animator, working on the likes of Pinocchio, Fantasia, Peter Pan, Cinderella, and Sleeping Beauty, before branching off into TV specials and series, primarily the Peanuts cartoons of the 1970s.

Kristin M. scores her 11th death of the year and moves up to fifth overall with the 17 points on Whitfield, while Dondos becomes the first team to score 20 deaths in a single year, picking up five points on Lusk. Well done!

You both kept these folks for next year, so if you want to replace them in your keepers you can do that today, otherwise they’ll come after the draft.


Donald Moffat!

Posted in Uncategorized on December 21, 2018 by joecetta

Actor Donald Moffat assumed the awesome responsibility of fictional command for the last time this week, at the age of 87! In a lengthy career littered with portrayals of a variety of judges and military men, Moffat may be best remembered for his work as Vice President Lyndon Baines Johnson in The Right Stuff and the corrupt-ish President Bennett in Harrison Ford’s second go-around as Jack Ryan (“How dare you, sir!”) in Clear and Present Danger. But Moffat is rocking well over a hundred credits, including roles in The Thing, Regarding Henry, 61*, The West Wing, License to Kill, and The Unbearable Lightness of Being.

And Mike Walsh reaches three deaths in a year for the first time since 2015! The resurgence is upon us! These 23 points for Moffat slide him up a few spots in the overall, and maybe kick that momentum into overdrive for 2019! Well done!

Replacement pick due by next Friday!

Penny Marshall!

Posted in Uncategorized on December 19, 2018 by joecetta

Director and actress Penny Marshall made her dreams come true for the last time this week, at the age of 75! Best known for her Golden Globe nominated work as Ms. DeFazio on ABC’s long running Laverne & Shirley, Marshall made the neat transition to directing, helming the likes of Best Picture Oscar nominee Awakenings, the first female directed film to gross over $100 million – Big (also snagging Best Screenplay and Best Actor nominations), and the best baseball movie of all time – A League of Their Own. A big basketball fan, Marshall’s last project is a documentary about international diplomat/Hall of Famer Dennis Rodman, currently in post-production.

And Nick M. scores his third death of the year, moving him up a few spots overall and – more importantly – qualifying him for the batting title (which requires a minimum of three deaths). I don’t comment on year end awards often during the season, but batting title has been a quietly amazing contest this year, and Nick is now squarely in that race. Only 12 days remaining in Year 12! Exciting!

Replacement pick due by next Wednesday!

Emails about keepers and draft dates coming soon!
